Art Yordy Is expected on this afternoon's train from Great Palls and will remain here until Monday when he will fjo to Fernie. The Ross-Yordy bout at Fernie on Labor Day is attracting wide attention. Yordy is out to retrieve the decision he lost to Ross" at Sweet Grass last December "ay a cloa; margin. He Is in better shape and has more poundage than he had in the Sweet Grass tangle, and he is hoping to win by the decision route. The only thing troubling the promoters is where to stack the crowd that wants to see the bout. The Grand theatre at Fernie will seat about 650. A crowd of 1000 is the least number they expect for. the bout. It will be a case of packing them in and removing the S.R.O. sign. "X accept De Loss Lund's challenge," was the Joyful statement "bf Bob Hearn, owner of "Baldy" to the sporting Ed. last night after reading the Raymond man's deli in the Herald for a matched race between Lund's "Bud", Hearn's "Baldy" and J. Leavitt's "Grey Dick" for $100 a corner. Weight, stakes and date suit Bob. "She'll be some race," said he. It's now up to Jerry Leavitt of Cardston. If he accepts the challenge, the race will surely he staged. None of Mr. Lund's other challenges have beep accepted as yet. The three-cornered race between Bud, Baldy and Grey Dick would be nbout the closest ever staged in this neck of the woods. Two years ago Bud beat Grey Dick. At the stampede here Baldy beat Bud by a head. At .Cardston fair Grey Dick beat Baldy by a nose. out for yourself. "You pays your money and you takes your choice." George Addison got his mare "Farewell" home from Cardston where sliei was hurt during the fair races. She will race no more this season.

Y STARS OFFICERS Gridiron Men Make Good at the Training Camp at Fort Snelling INTERNATIONAL Richmond disappointment to him as he was , ambitious to pitch until he reached the" age of 45. New York, Aug. 30.-Washington has developed into such a weak sister financially that the American league must shoulder heavy losses or find a new home for tho Senators.  In the past years the nation's capital has never been a red-hot baseball town, yet before tho war there was enough interest in baseball there to warrant the junior major league retaining its Washington territory. But since Uncle Sam shouldered his musket and stepped into the world-wide fracas the good folk in Washington are so deeply occupied with other matters that their intimacy with baseball consists chiefly of glancing at the scores. Sees Rocks Ahead Under such conditions President Ben Minor can see nothing but rocky reefs ahead for his club, and it is only natural that Minor as well as Ban Johnson and other American leaguers should bo casting abo y. for a new home for tho Washington club. Ban Johnson -stated some time ago that the thought of moving the Washington franchise was absurd. He said the idea of moving the national pasti o from the nation's first city was a. ridiculous one. But it takes something besides sentiment to keep a ball club going, and Washington is a heavy loser so far this season. Well informed baseball men predict that before the season of 1918 rolls around the Washington franchise will be moved. It is whispered tha! the American league has Its eyes on Toronto, and also on Brooklyn, where uso could be made of the old Federal league park. The tact that exhibition games between major league teams have been played in Toronto this season, as late as two weeks ago, Indicates that the powers that be in baseball are feeling out Toronto fans. An argument against putting a major league club In Toronto because o� Canada's active part in the war has been advanced, yet, according to President Bartow of tho International Itfaguo, Toronto has proven itself to be one of the best paying cities In his circuit. t Invade New Territory Moving the Washington franchise will necessitate the invasion of new territory by the American league, and before such a move can' be made the consent of the. league. whose territory is to be invaded must be gotten. It* is whispered around New York that Ban Johnson has already made arrangements with the International loaguo to invade Toronto in case such a movo should be deemed advisable, and that through an arrangement with President Ebbets ot the Dodgers, sanctioned by the club owners of tho National league, the way has been paved to include Brooklyn in the American league circuit. Developments during the coming fall and winter will have much to do with the final decision, and should the war come to an end suddenly the Washington club may stick where it is uow.
